Information for all supporters attending our cinch Premiership game against Celtic at Easter Road.
The Club continues to work to identify the individuals involved in the actions at Ibrox, and we thank those supporters who have already come forward to assist the Club with information, or just in general support on the actions taken by the Club.
We remind all supporters that anyone caught in possession of pyrotechnics, caught throwing objects, causing damage, entering the trackside or field of play, bringing of bottles/cans into the stadium can expect action to be taken. The Club will continue to support the actions of Police Scotland and the Courts in acting against anyone detected carrying out a breach of the Ground Regulations or being involved in Unacceptable Conduct. Regardless of if we are home or away sanctions against any breach may result in the individual facing an indefinite Club Ban, a Football Banning Order or as we have seen elsewhere recently, a custodial sentence. Please don’t be that person!
Other than the Hearts away game, pyrotechnics have not been present amongst our support and this is appreciated by the Club and Players. Recent games have shown we do not need pyrotechnics at our matches to create an atmosphere. In addition to the toxic fumes that are emitted the disruption to the match is something on a football perspective is not welcomed by the Football Department. Your Club doesn’t want this, the players don’t want this and from communication we have received, supporters don’t want this.
The playing surface is for the players. Any individual who does enter the pitch or trackside, regardless of age, in addition to facing possible arrest will also face sanction by the Club that will include an indefinite ban from attending matches at Easter Road or from purchasing tickets involving the Club.
Walkways must be kept clear, and you are asked to take up your designated seat while watching the match. This is not only a Ground Regulations requirement but also in the interest of the safety of all members of the public.
This is a please where families come together to support their team and Hibernian Football Club prides itself in being a Club for everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, colour, gender, religion, creed and sexual orientation. Please help us keep it this way.

The road closure at Montrose Terrace at London Road and the temporary traffic lights at Marrionville Road have been lifted, however there are road works at Meadowbank Stadium on London Road that may slow supporters down by a few minutes in both directions. At the time of writing, we are also being made aware of a march in the Regent Road area of the City and this may impact your travel routes, public transport and potentially where you might normally park for the match so, please add additional time for your journey.
